This weekend was filled with fun and excitement. We could not have asked for a better way to finish up our On The House free summer concerts.
In case you missed it, here is a quick review of the weekend:
On Friday, we welcomed ¡FlaMÉXico! to our stage. Before the doors opened to the stage, Ballet Folklorico Quetzalli-AZ, one of the featured 14th Annual Chandler C3HR Mariachi Festival performers, filled the lobby with incredible dances.
¡FlaMÉXico! then took the audience by surprise with their foot-tapping music and fantastic footwork. To say the least the evening was impresionante!
Saturday evening was yet another free summer concert. We had the wonderful opportunity to hear the musical beats of six up and coming bands/vocalists. It was a great youth showcase!
